Quiet, epic, restrained, powerful. These are the images that tell their stories quietly and succinctly, but create maximum impact. They can be captured anywhere – from moments in a daily life to split-seconds in sport, from landscapes to red carpets to art-like conceptual work. On a surface level, the photos are direct and uncomplicated. But they engage our emotions and spirit with a clear message, like a visual haiku. You get hooked and the story unfolds.
As an overstimulated society, we instinctively welcome the calmness. It’s a visual respite that deliberately creates a contrast to the increasing digital noise in our lives. Stillness captured, call it the edited version, but it makes us take notice, focus and think.
